Early edition of the classic text on international law, published in the same year as the first 'London' [i.e. Neuchatel] edition, and nine years before Vattel's death in 1767. This work was much read in the American colonies, and greatly influenced the thinking of the framers of the American constitution. 'No writer on the law of nations before Vattel had so consistently - and persistently - emphasized freedom, independence, and interdependence as the condition of states in their relations with one another. The authors of the American Declaration would soon adopt his repeated insistence that states were "free and independent" as the conception of their own states' condition. By doing so, they enacted Vattel's central contention that - in the words of his contemporary English translator - "independence is ever necessary to each state"; to secure that independence "it is sufficient that nations conform to what is required of them by the natural and general society, established among all mankind." In due course, this would become the standard modern definition in international law of independence as "the capacity to enter into relations with other states." In 1775 Benjamin Franklin sought out the latest edition of Vattel's work for the benefit of Congress" (David Armitage, The Declaration of Independence: A Global History, Harvard, 2007, pp. 40-41). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4to, two volumes in one, [xxxvi], 228, [xvi], 162 pp., contemporary half calf, rubbed, rebacked with original label, outer leaves a little dusty, occasional spotting, a very good copy.
